John Fulkerson won’t be available for Tennessee this afternoon when the Vols face Alabama in the SEC Tournament semifinal round at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville. A Tennessee spokesperson on Saturday said Fulkerson is out for the remainder of the SEC Tournament after being diagnosed with a concussion and facial fracture.
Tennessee (18-7), the No. 4 seed in the bracket, faces No. 1-seed Alabama (22-6) at 1 p.m. Eastern Time on ESPN. Fulkerson left the Vols’ 78-66 win over Florida early in the second half on Friday after taking two elbows from Gator forward Omar Payne.
